me General Walker was pressing them on their right, and thus hemmed in, they gave way, and many were taken prisoners — about 1.000 by my brigade and the remainder by General Walker. Four stands of colors were taken by my brigade; also about 175 horses. I am glad to say that my loss was small — only nine killed and thirty-four wounded--though I regret to mention among the killed, Captain J. S. R. Miller, a gallant and meritorious officer of the First North Carolina regiment. I cannot speak in terms too high of the tanner in which all the officers and men conducted themselves, every one doing all in his power to accomplish the end in view. Captain G. G. Garrison, assistant Adjutant-General, and First Lieutenant R. H. McKim, may aid de camp, rendered valuable assistance, the latter occasionally serving at the piece on the bridge. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Geo. H. Steuart, Brigadier-General Commanding. Major B. W. Leigh, A. A. Gen'l, Johnson's Divisio

nd hence to Canton, I was ordered by General Jackson to pass that place, then occupied by the enemy, and operate upon his left flank in his march towards Vicksburg. This was done on the 29th ultimo and 1st and 2d instant, resulting in killing and capturing about sixty of the enemy, and the capture of thirty-three (33) horses, two wagons and teams and a number of small arms. In these affairs, Major Stockdale, Captain Muldron and Captain Yerger were the most conspicuous and gallant participants. I have to lament the loss of Captain McGruder, of the Fourth Mississippi, who fell seriously if not mortally wounded, whilst leading a charge near Canton. I am indebted to Captain F. W. Keyes, Captain A. T. Bowie and Lieutenant George Scott, of my staff, and Lieutenant George Yerger, who volunteered his services, for efficient and valuable assistance. I am, Captain, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Wirt Adams, Brigadier-General. Captain George Moorman, A. A. Gen'l J. C. D.

General, Chief of Staff. Official: S. Williams, A. A. Gen'l.

neral: Headquarters are here, and the following is the information: Crittenden's corps is advancing on us from Chatanooga. A large force from the south has advanced to within seven miles of this point. Polk is left at Anderson's to cover your rear. General Bragg orders you to attack and force your way through the enemy to this point at the earliest hour you can see him in the morning. Cleburn will attack in front the moment your guns are heard. I am, General, etc., Geo. W. Brent, A. A. Gen'l. The force seven miles to the south of Lafayette was the cause of the concentration at that point; and as every one on the ground knew, this concentration was not a part of the movement on Crittenden. This dispatch, together with the extract from General Bragg's report, already given, shows that not only after, but even before Hindman's failure, the Confederate commander had very good knowledge of his enemy's whereabouts. Standing in McLemore's Cove, he knew, and his splendid ar

Prospect of Civil war in Kentucky. The Louisville Courier, in an editorial upon the probabilities of civil war in Kentucky and showing who will be responsible there's for, says: Woe to the Lincolnites, when the honest Union men of Kentucky find out their real game. They have been accustomed to trust their leaders, and hitherto they could not be convinced that men in whom they have so long confided were capable of forming a design so awfully atrocious, so inconceivably ho

They then proceeded to Washington with the intention of getting to Richmond. The following is a copy of the forged pass which enabled them to cross the river: "Headquarters, Oct. 13th, 1861. "Pass Mr. Glass across bridge and ferries to Gen. King's brigade on important business. "By order of Gen. King. "R. Chandler, A. A. Gen'l." With this they managed to pass the pickets, and went to Ball's house. Then watching an opportunity, the two struck into the woods and came into our lines. They state their intentions to join our army, although in what capacity I do not know. They will probably be sent to Richmond to-morrow morning, unless identified by some man in the army. Both are gentlemanly, fine looking men, and complain bitterly of their detention here. Col. S. B. Paul, the Provost Marshal, has done all
